Naomi Assani, a gifted Ghanaian gospel singer based in the United Kingdom, has advised fellow industry players and upcoming gospel artistes to focus on winning souls in the music ministry if they truly want to fulfill God’s mandate.
In a chat with Sampson Annan of GospelEmpireGh.Com, the ‘Righteous’ hit maker indicated that, ‘what some gospel artistes want is to make money. Gospel ministers should be soul-oriented rather than money-driven.’
“Well, I see gospel ministers as servants of God and the Bible admonishes us to be a soul winner. I am not saying that gospel ministers should not be rewarded of their ministrations and their service in the house of God though. They should prioritize soul winning first, and then all other rewards will be added to them as a bonus. Remember he who wins soul is wise,” she said.
The anointed vessel also indicated that some gospel artists view gospel music as pure business, and that few are concerned about the souls who are perishing every day.
“I understand we are workers in the vineyard led by Jesus Christ, but few have followed the command to always charge before accepting church invitations since our recompense in heaven is the greatest of all benefits on earth, despite the fact that it is intangible,” she suggested.
The budding gospel singer also advised gospel musicians to avoid following in the footsteps of other musicians who have made their calling a profession, so converting their calling into a business oriented affair.
I understand that you pay for the music video shoot and for it to be broadcast on television, but that doesn’t mean we’ll always be paper chasers in the industry.
According to the dynamic recording and performing artist, the gospel music industry has evolved to the point that materialism has become a priority for many gospel performers, who believe their musical gift or voice should be used to assist them enjoy their own benefits.
Minister Naomi Assani, who created a name for herself in the Ghanaian Gospel industry with her debut album Aseda, has redefined herself in the Ghanaian Gospel scene with her current single titled ‘Righteous’.
Her recent single, “Righteous,” is now receiving a lot of radio play.
The song “Righteous” is a follow-up to “Aseda,” which was previously released.
